E3 fashion week – 5 best and worst looking console designs

It’s console fashion week (aka E3) and what a great time to look back at our beloved plastic boxes of the past, present and future and reminisce about some of fashions biggest triumphs and fails in console design. WORST 5. Nintendo Entertainment System Bulky squared off design, with a grey colour scheme that just screams…

WHAT DO GAMERS WANT?

Philosophers and academics have been asking this questions since the dawn of time and the answer to this conundrum will always be the same… literally. Gamers want the same things, that’s it, I’ve solved the riddle – pay me a million pounds , give me the Nobel Peace Prize, done. Do you want a new…

TOP 10 DRAG RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE SEASONS

So the time has come for me to rank my favourite Drag Race seasons. As the excellent second season of Rupaul’s Drag Race UK draws to its conclusion, I felt it was time to look back over the seasons and decide which ones I feel stand tall above the rest. This is no easy task,…

TOP 5 FEMALE VIDEOGAME CHARACTERS

It’s women’s history month as well as International Women’s Day (on March 8th) and with that in mind I wanted to honour some of the best and most iconic female videogame characters. 5. SAMUS ARAN Samus Aran is an icon, the protagonist from the 1986 game Metroid, this ground breaking character was one of the…

A Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 Wishlist…

I make no secret about my love for the first Hellblade game. It came as a complete surprise how much I loved it, the game was barely on my radar till Ninja Theory was acquired by Microsoft and I finally played the game once it hit Gamepass – I wish I hadn’t waited. I was…

THE PLAYSTATION STUDIOS TO WATCH IN THE NEXT GENERATION

PlayStation have had a killer generation, the bounce back from the PS3 has been the stuff of legends, every year since 2015 Sony have managed to turn out a shocking number of high quality exclusives that have not only defined their respective genres, but will go down as some of the greatest games of all…

TOMB RAIDER HAS NEVER REACHED ITS FULL POTENTIAL

Tomb Raider is now entering it’s 25th year in our lives, yes Miss Lara Croft has been with us for almost a quarter of a century (25th October is the 25th Anniversary if you want to mark it in your calendars), I have friends that weren’t even alive when the first Tomb Raider released! In…

WONDER WOMAN 1984 REVIEW

Films based on comic books were in danger over becoming oversaturated, every other month Marvel or DC would release their latest loud Blockbuster all vying for the same thrills and huge box office. The original Wonder Woman struck a chord with me, I loved watching this strong charismatic woman take centre stage in a fabulously…

IN DEFENCE OF FABLE

OK gamers as Meryl Streep said to Goldie Hawn in the film ‘Death Becomes Her’ as she shoots her in the stomach with a shotgun “you’ve bought this on yourself”. Yes readers it is you that has driven me to this, and possibly the extreme boredom bought on by a 2 week isolation, but instead…

THE XBOX GAME STUDIOS TO WATCH IN THE NEXT GENERATION

It’s 2013 and the Xbox division isn’t in the best place, the end of the 360 generation had funnelled all their energies into creating gimmicky Kinect games and the direction of their newly released console was muddled under the stewardship of Don Mattrick. Despite this Xbox still managed a fairly appealing set of games for…

TOP 5 ACTRESSES TO VOICE LARA CROFT NEXT

Angelina Jolie and Alicia Vikander may get most of the attention by playing Lara on the big screen, but Lara is still most popular in her original videogame form, with the voice actresses of the game often being unsung heroes. Camilla Luddington and Keeley Hawes have voiced the iconic woman most recently to varying degrees…

TOP 10 GAMES THAT COULD (OR SHOULD) HAVE BEEN GAME OF THE YEAR

We love ourselves a Game of the Year, a prize with such gravitas that it renders all other games obsolete. And we could argue for days whether a game deserves the accolade… *cough Dragon Age Inquisition cough* – but the games that win these top prizes are critical darlings, made by developers that are at…

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER – RETRO GAME REVIEW

It’s crazy to think Buffy ended 17 years ago and started 23 years ago! The show still holds up today despite some questionable special effects and fashion choices. The reason it holds up even now is the witty and intelligent writing, believable characters and multi-layered protagonist whose super powers and destiny gave her an interesting…

A GENERATION OF EXCELLENCE – PLAYSTATION 4 AND XBOX ONE IN MEMORIAM

It’s a tad early… there’s a Cyberpunk hole in my life that can only be filled by CD Project Red. I long for some Cyberpunky goodness, a role-playing game where I can finally have the ‘double E’ breasts and the 10 inch appendage I have always desired, nay deserved! But I’m here today to celebrate…

CRASH BANDICOOT 4: IT’S ABOUT TIME REVIEW

Since the days of the original PlayStation, platformers have slowly dwindled to the point of extinction, with only Mario still managing to sell gangbusters among the Call of Duty’s and Grand Theft Auto’s of the gaming landscape. Then Activision decided to revive beloved 90’s mascot Crash Bandicoot with the stellar N-Sane trilogy. A reminder of…

TOP 5 TV SHOWS THAT SHOULD GET MADE INTO VIDEOGAMES

The inspiration for videogames comes from far and wide these days; books, films, artwork and of course television. There have been some great adaptations of television shows from Telltale’s The Walking Dead series and Obsidian’s South Park Stick of Truth and then there have been some games that even fiery pits of hell would reject…

THE SINNER SEASON 3 REVIEW

The advent of television streaming has lead to a true golden age of television, with the quality going far beyond what came before. Crime and drama are two genres that have been revitalised and the first season of The Sinner was a riveting ‘why-dunnit’ and managed to tell a different kind of crime story. Going…

MRS AMERICA REVIEW

Mrs America was completely unknown to me, I wasn’t aware of its creation and it was by chance I came across an advert on social media that caught my eye – Cate Blanchett was reason enough but the stellar all-star cast and an intriguing premise really sold me and got me on a BBC iplayer…

WHY TOMB RAIDER 2 DESERVES A REMAKE

Tomb Raider 2 the myth, the legend, the legs. Tomb Raider 2 the boom, the bombast, the breasts. Tomb Raider 2 the guns, the female empowerment, the poor fashion choices (shorts in the Tibetan foothills, really?). It was a far more confident outing than the original, increased graphical fidelity, tighter storyline, new abilities, less rigid…
